If a fight is called something similar to Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward, it has a lot to live up to. When Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado slugged it out in October of 2012, it seemed like we were going to get such a thing. While the fight was great for 7 rounds, it didn’t come close. Now this Saturday we have something that many are saying is Gatti-Ward, will it come close? HBO Boxing kicks off spring with an action-packed, split-site doubleheader featuring some of the most exciting fighters in the sport when HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: LUCAS MATTHYSSE VS.
